What does collate mean on a printer?

Answer

Collate is the function on a printer that enables arrangement of individual sheets being duplicated into a pre-determined order or sequence. Collating is designed to create consistent and logical documents.

Some printers offer a variety of different collating options. This includes the standard single-sided, page-by-page collating scheme. Other options include two-sided collating. In addition, some printers permit a user to collate in book form, printing two pages on each side of a standard 8-by-11.5 sheet of paper with a landscape setting. Other printers not only provide different collating options but also staple the final duplicated product in a number of different ways.
